Hence, the thesis is of interest to everybody who is concerned with "perspective" or "multiperspectivity" in narrations as well as students of Ian McEwan's work., abstract: In this thesis Ansgar Nunning's concept of multiperspectival narration is applied to Ian McEwan's Atonement in great detail. Hence, the thesis is of interest to everybody who is concerned with "perspective" or "multiperspectivity" in narrations as well as students of Ian McEwan's work. In post-modern english literature, Ian McEwan has received considerable attention from critics and scholars and his writing is certainly most noteworthy. In his best-selling novel "Atonement," McEwan employs a multitude of subjective perspectives which is not only a key element for suspense and understanding the plot but also an instrument of reception control. In order to gain access to the narrational strategies of the novel and for a deeper understanding of McEwan's perfect controll of narratological and stylistic devices, Ansgar and Vera Nunning's concept to analyze multiperspectivity in narration is applied to "Atonement." Although A. and V. Nunning's concept augments modern narratology with an extraordinary instrument to analyze perspectivity, it lacks application so far. Ian McEwan's "Atonement" provides an excellent field for exploring multiperspectivity. So this essay will use A. and V. Nunning's categories in order to analyze the structure of perspectives and its controlling functuin in McEwan's "Atonement." Therefore, the general concept of A. and V. Nunning concerning multiperspectivity is introduced at first. It is necessary to have a close look at form

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Cultural Studies - Basics and Definitions, grade: 3,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Department of British & Irish Studies / Translation Studies), course: Seminar: Transferring & Translating Media (Novels to Film): Ian McEwan's Atonement, language: English, abstract: "Atonement", the novel by Ian McEwan published in 2001, is qualified by many critics as a “wartime love story”. It is an interpretation that suits the glamorous criteria needed by the public and provided by the media nowadays. This interpretation however solely focuses on the characters of Cecilia and Robbie and forgets the important part that Briony or her writing process play in the novel and Joe Wright's film. A complete reading of Atonement should include a study of the title and its implications in the story. We will start by analyzing the meaning of the word “atonement”. The choice of this title has a special significance for the whole novel and should lead us readers and spectators to understand its message – to know whether the spirit of the novel has been respected by the film maker is a question to which we will also answer briefly. The tragic event that happened in Part One of the novel could never have taken place in a more opened social environment. With other codifications, more courage and less things left unsaid, the story would have been different. We will examine some of the taboos that played an important role in the shaping of Atonement's characters. The notion of guilt is very present in the novel, thus it will be, in relation to atonement, the central focus of this paper. We will consider the main characters, i.e. Briony, Robbie, Cecilia, Lola and Paul Marshall and try to evaluate the degree to which each one of them is guilty, feels guilty and is willing to atone for his sins. The last part of the paper will be essentially dedicated to the film, to Joe Wright's interpretation of the concepts we named above. Considering our paper's subject, was it a good or a bad adaptation?

This book provides a close reading of Ian McEwan’s novel Atonement and its adaptation by Joe Wright, examining the relevance of various critical or theoretical movements such as narratology, adaptation theory and ethical criticism. It shows that the intertextuality and metafiction in McEwan’s novel are adapted by Wright in a film which taps into the intermedial logic of metaadaptation. To study how both the novel and the film question the possibilities of their respective medium, this book analyses the ways Atonement disrupts the chronologies of creation and engages in an intricate game with focalisation and narration. The second part investigates the generic, linguistic and aesthetic distortions which aim at breaking and sexing the medium. Lastly, the book tackles the formal and ethical quandaries of Atonement and its “conversation with modernism”, suggesting several philosophical and political interpretations of Briony’s final confession that “the attempt was all” and of its aesthetic implications in the novel and on screen.

A Quest For The Self

This thesis explores Briony's individuation and the effectiveness of her redemption in Ian McEwan's Atonement by employing Freud's psychoanalytic theory and Jung's archetypal theory. Joseph Campbell's concept of heroic journey is also applied as a structure to explore how Briony experiences the individuation through her writing and eventually regains her spiritual fulfillment -the self. The thesis is divided into five parts. Chapter One introduces the author and the novel, research concerning the theoretical study of the novel, and theories applied in this thesis. Chapter Two discusses why the thirteen-year-old Briony makes the wrong accusation against Robbie. Freud's psychoanalytical theory of personality and anxiety is employed to explain Briony's mental statement, anxiety, and her relationship with her family. Freud's theory of sublimation is also applied to investigate how Briony uses writing to transform her anxiety into a form of artistic creation. Chapter Three examines Jung's theory of archetypes and individuation to see how the archetypes may affect the individual and force one to embark on the individuation. Chapter Four analyzes Briony's individuation, including departure, initiation, and return, in Jungian idea of archetypes and individuation. Through leaving home and facing reality, Briony realizes her immaturity and makes her redemption -she eventually learns to sympathize with others and returns to the self through writing the book Atonement. Chapter Five concludes the above chapters and discusses the validity of Briony's atonement..

Waiting for the End examines two dozen contemporary novels within the context of a half century of theorizing about the function of ending in narrative. That theorizing about ending generated a powerful dynamic a quarter-century ago with the advent of feminist criticism of masculinist readings of the role played by ending in fiction. Feminists such as Theresa de Lauretis in 1984 and more famously Susan Winnett in her 1991 PMLA essay, Coming Unstrung, were leading voices in a swelling chorus of theorist pointing out the masculinist bias of ending in narrative. With the entry of feminist readings of ending, it became inevitable that criticism of fiction would become gendered through the recognition of difference transcending a simple binary of female/male to establish a spectrum of masculine to feminine endings, regardless of the sex of the writer. Accordingly, Waiting for the End examines pairs of novels - one pair by Margaret Atwood and one by Ian McEwan - to demonstrate how a writer can offer endings at either end of the gender spectrum.
